Trentino

Although Trentino regional white wines are sometimes considered light by ­international standards, the best of them have an unexpected propensity to age. But the ­emphasis remains on the popular Pinot Grigio. Despite the traditional flow north to German-speaking countries, the white wines of Trentino have been making steady progress in Italy and, recently, in foreign ­markets, such as the United States and United Kingdom.
